Any Black person posting on this thread please ignore the racist bigots who have and will post bigoted comments. Don't let their hatred and ignorance distract you from having a meaningful discussion about the topic of this thread.

Also, don't let the good news about unemployment rates going down for Black Women start a divisive discussion between Black men and Black women.

Far too often Black people fight among themselves over issues that should bring them together instead of tearing them apart. Also, you will have racist bigots who will sometimes instigate these fights because they love seeing Black men and Black women fight with each other.

You obviously did not read my post, or you did not fully comprehend it.

First of all I did not mention anything about Whites so why are you saying I am blaming Whites for anything.

Second I never said anything about Blacks being or not being dysfunctional. I merely encouraged them to not get side tracked by racist bigots who post on this forum to disrupt the conversation and in some cases to instigate fights among Black people.

You also apparently missed what I said about Black people far to often fight with each other over issues that should bring them together.

I realize that you are probably one of the many racist bigots who come here day in and day out to insult Black people, but could you at least carefully read post before you start your ignorant rants?

So why are you as a white racist so concerned with the black race?

people like shalimar and the others are just divisive azzhats that have nothing better to do than attempt to create discord. It's good to know that unemployment for black women is low, but for some any achievement or good fortune for black women seems to equal a strike against black men. Case in point check out the post about Kerry Washingtons husband getting cut from the 49ers and you'll see so much hatred directed against the man that it's just unreal.

Since you hypersensitive crybabies seem to believe you "can't BE" racist,
.....you must have been talking about Asians and Hispanics, then,.....right?
(Fkkng LIAR!)
I never said anything about who can and cannot be racist.
When I say racist bigots I'm talking about racist bigots,
if the shoe fits wear it, and if it does not apply to you then
ignore it.

How am I liar because I corrected you by letting you know I never
said anything about White people? I did not mention White people so I was telling the truth when I said I did not mention White people.

I don't know which is greater, your ignorance or your stupidity.

To the extent that it happens, I think Black men and Black women need to stop treating each other as the enemy. Of course there are some Black men and Black women who are irresponsible and a detriment to the Black community. There are also some self hating Black people. However they do not represent all Black people.

As soon as Black people learn to celebrate Black men and Black women who are doing positive constructive things, the Black race will do much better as a whole. I am not saying that Black people should ignore the bad negative behavior in some Black men and Black women, but those people should not be held up to represent the majority of Black people.

The only discussions you colored racists ever have,
... are ABOUT us "racist bigots".
First of all I don't condone the use of any derogatory words to describe a group of people. You have never seen me use the word
"Cracker" to refer to White people.

Second, for every thread that you can show me that you think shows Black people attacking Whites, I can show you a LOT more with Blacks being insulted and attacked by people who I assume to be White.

Third, my guess is if you didn't have so many people coming to the AA forum day in and day out using derogatory insults against Black people, most Black people on here would not retaliate by using words like "Cracker." I'm sure there may be some who would, but in large part most Black people are just sick and tired of seeing racist comments posted about them no matter what the topic of the thread is.

Forth, why are you even here? If you dislike Black people as much as I think you do, why do you spend so much time in the AA forum?
If I despised a group of people that much, I sure as hell would not be spending so much time where they are.

They are not counting the people that are collecting disability instead of unemployment as unemployed. It is a sneaky thing politicians do to pat their own backs.
